Montessori Monday

We had a wonderful Montessori work week! All of the dhildren are still enjoying our daily rhythm. Our work period is still mostly made up of small groups, but it is to be expected for right now. I bet soon maybe I will be able to sit and observe and add more flavor to the childrens' liking. They are enjoying what is avaliable to them now and are even doing lots of extension lessons that some weren't interested in doing before.

                                        Practical Life

                                           Pouring beans

                                            Scooping beads

                                  Scrubbing carrots for vegetable soup

                                                Moveable Alphabet

                                                 Pin Punching


                                                  Mystery Bag

                           Melissa & Doug Sequence Shape Sorter

                                          Color Tablets Box #2

                               Tracing Number 2 Book

Proof! Multiage Groupings work. Happy is modeling what she has seen her peers do with the Blue Constructive Triangles. See? She even has the design cards turned over.

                               Pink Tower/Brown Stairs extensions.
Now imagine the sound of children laughing and humming along while enjoying the days work. Yes it was a beautiful week.

  1. Thanks for linking up to Montessori Monday! This is just the kind of blog I love- lots of visual information. I think multi-age is one of the most beautiful things about Montessori and I see the benefits with my kids as they start to teach each other new things!


  2. It looks like you had an amazing week. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. JR and I love to peek in and see what other school rooms are doing during the week. It gives us a great connection with other Montessori children. Your pictures are fantastic. :)

  3. Heidi- Thank you for stopping by. I agree one of the most beautiful things about Montessori is the multiage. When I finally got to teaching my youngest how to read I realized his older sisters had already taught him letter sounds. I just love it!
    Lori- Thank you for coming to peek into our classroom. We are always peeking into yours:) Love your blog!

  4. It's awesome to see such great work in action! LOVE how concentrated the children are! Thanks for linking up with Montessori Monday! I featured your post at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page:

    By the way, it look like you have the same problem I do with the blogger commenting system (where it doesn't accept your Google profile). It won't work for me when I use Internet Explorer. I use the Firefox browser for commenting now, and that works just fine!

  6. Deb-Thank you for featuring this post and the commenting tip.

  7. What a great peak into your Montessori week! It's fantastic that you're able to share so many pictures with everyone. It's a lovely way to help others on their Montessori journey. Thank you!

  8. I always love seeing the focused work going on there. It brings such a smile to my face to see those busy, happy children! :) You capture it so well.
